| Grotesque dreamworlds: the earthy, comic films by Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg in a big retrospective of their work
Nathalie Djurberg (*1978) and Hans Berg (*1978) create animated worlds with objects, music and moving images – dreamlike realms where we might lose ourselves. Their playfully told fables hold both humour and darkness, putting any moral laws of gravity out of action. Djurberg’s vibrant stop-motion animations and sculpture groups accompanied by Berg’s electronic music form scenic installations in a surrealist vein. These intense chamber pieces enact fragments of memories repressed between innocence and shame, or feverish daydreams of role play and desire. The shadowy landscapes, sealed rooms and harshly-lit scenes of their films are inhabited by a group of possessed figures seemingly set on devouring one another. The exhibition and fully illustrated catalog describe an inner voyage, an attempt to make existence more understandable in a flow of impulses and impressions.Exhibitions:Moderna Museet, Stockholm, 16.6.–9.9.2018Museo d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto (MART), Rovereto, 5.10.2018–13.1.2019Kunsthalle Schirn, Frankfurt, 28.2.–26.5.2019
